This beauty article titled “Beauty–Man’s Eye View” from the Sept 1964 edition of Ladies Home Journal has some great mid-century photography. It is enjoyable as long as you don’t read the text. It is hard to stomach.
The article describes 8 ways to please your man with your beauty.
- If you wear glasses, pick the right frame
- Clean shiny hair that your man can run his hands through
- Gentle Hands
- Your voice. Practice by talking to yourself in the corner of an empty room
- Wear the right makeup
- A creamy complexion all the way down to There.
- Good legs.
Thank you very much beauty editor, but I’d rather follow the advice of my mid-century grandmother. When it came to men (and life in general), she had these simple words. Be yourself. Decide for yourself.
This is the same advice I will give to my own granddaughters, and anyone who will listen to me.
That’s the end of my soap box. Now enjoy these cool pictures and more ridiculous quotes from the article.
